Protecting His Witness (Red Stone Security #7) by Katie Reus Review

4.5 Stars

I love this series and each book seems to get better and better. While you can read each book as a stand alone I would recommend starting from the beginning. You see characters from previous books in each new one. Vincent has been in past books and he had lost the woman he loved Jordan, when she suddenly disappeared. He had tried finding her but eventually tried to move on. Jordan suddenly shows back up in his life and on at his front door wanting to explain everything.
Experiencing Vincent's emotions as he deals with Jordan coming back into his life was a wonderful part of the story. He runs the gamut of hurt, anger, lust and love. Jordan was running from trouble and has now dragged Vincent into it anyways.
The story is a great mix of suspense and romance and holds your attention till the end. You cant help but keep reading to see if they will get their HEA and if Vincent can ever forgive the hurt and pain he was put through.

The Demon's Desire (Hearts of the Fallen, #2) Review

4 out 5 stars

The Demon's Desire is the second book in the Hearts of Fallen series. If you haven't read the first book The Demon's Song I highly recommend you pick it up. While you don't need to have read it before this one you will be more familiar with the characters and the world.
It begins in Terra Noctem a hidden world of vampires, angels, demons and fallen angels. The world building and characters are intriguing and draw you not the story. 
The hero Meresin is the Fallen Angel of Storms, he is a weapon in himself and it comes with a price. He is damaged, flawed and pushes everyone away. In order to save himself he has to return to Purgatory. He has always been a loner but to survive he knows he needs Dru's help. The one woman he cares for but refuses to admit to.
Dru is vampire royalty and ever since she kissed Meresin she has wanted him. She is the only person that brings some peace to him. Her strength of character, caring and determination to help the man she loves really has you rooting for her and you can't help but to be drawn to her.
Dru follows Meresin to Purgatory, a mission that is sure to kill him. Slowly throughout their journey Dru wears him down and once she does WOW does it get hot. The romance while slow to begin is well worth the wait.
This is story of betrayal, redemption and second chances. I loved that it featured a heroine who is the one pursuing her man. She is determined to save him and have him and never gives up.
My only complaint is that he ending was a little abrupt and felt rushed but overall another great story from a fantastic author.

Affliction (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #22) by Laurell K. Hamilton

3.5 out of 5 stars

We finally seem to be seeing some of the old Anita. The one that's a executioner and not a Succubus. The storyline was interesting and emotional. Characters and relationships are finally showing some development. Anita is starting to sort out where all the men in her life belong and how she truly feels. Parts of the story still dragged on and there was a lot of the sexist trash talk which is getting a little old but overall the action and story kept my attention and had me wanting o know what would happen. This has been my favorite Anita book in awhile. Hopefully we'll continue to see more of the executioner and more of JC who I love and missed in this book.

Immortal Prey by Diana Ballew Review

4 out of 5 stars

Great read by an author I had never read before. The world building is descriptive and beautiful. You feel like you are in the story and experiencing what the characters are going through. It takes place between the past and the present and was well written that I never became confused and it actually built the story up and made it very intriguing. Derek was a fantastically built hero. He is a complicated character who is fighting for redemption and a second chance at his happily ever after.
Beautifully worded with an interesting story about a man trying for a second chance at love it is a definite read for PNR lovers.

Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X #1) Review

4 out of 5 stars

There are things I love about this book and some I didn't.
It's world building and unique storyline featuring religious extremist, magic and enhanced soldiers had me interested and entertained for the most part but the complexity of it all also confused me at times. There's a lot to take in about the social structures of the countries and the different religious beliefs and how the government controls them.
Mae is a deadly soldier who seems cold and unfeeling but throughout the novel we start to see a different side of her. I am very curious to see how revelations about her in this book shape her future.
Justin is not you typical book hero. He is brilliant, laid back and completely flawed. There were times I loved him and then a few pages later wanted to punch him. His story now that Gods have come into the picture should be very intriguing.
If you are looking for a romance novel or books similar to Meads other series, you will not find that here. It is nothing like her other novels. That being said I actually enjoyed the more dystopian aspect of it and can't wait to see how the relationship between Mae and Justin plays out.

The Thing About Weres (Mystwalker #2) Review

5 out of 5 stars

One word describes this book .. FANTASTIC

I couldn't put it down and the ending made me want the next book now.

This has easily become one of my favorite series. It is gritty, dark, sweet and unpredictable. This story is filled with several different plot lines. You definitely want to read The Trouble With Fate before you start this one. Hedi our flawed and snarky heroine is dealing with the NWA the shifters government, trying to be Alpha of a pack that pretty much hates her and trying to open the portal to Merenwyn to get Trowbridge back.
A story filled with ups and downs once it gets going it will grab your attention and holds on. Hedi does a lot of growing in this book and is slowly becoming the woman I know she is. Her and Trowbridges relationship while dysfunctional is also sweet and when the two of them are together I can't get enough. 
This series is unique and exciting. It features flawed and fantastic characters we can all relate to in some ways. The ending while not a cliffhanger will definitely leave you wanting more. 
And did I mention the bet part... Naked Trowbridge.. Need I say more.
